The Anderson Foundation Awards Grants Totaling $59,991 to Three Nonprofit Organizations

Published on 01/02/2015 by Joanne Olnhausen

In partnership with Toledo Community Foundation, the Anderson Foundation recently awarded grants totaling $59,991 to three area nonprofit organizations.  Earlier this year, the Board of Trustees of the Anderson Foundation partnered with the Toledo Community Foundation to release a new funding opportunity to area nonprofit organizations providing services that are aligned with the goals of Aspire.  Under this special request for proposals, grants were awarded to the following organizations:

·         Adelante, Inc.  - $22,991 to support the Leamos Juntos early literacy intervention.

·         Catholic Club - $17,000 to support kindergarten readiness workshops and enhanced technology tools for early childhood education classrooms.

·         The University of Toledo Foundation - $20,000 to support the Reach Out and Read program.

Aspire is a collective impact partnership that convenes community leaders around a common “cradle to career readiness” agenda.  It connects service providers, citizens, researchers, educators and business leaders around the common goal of helping children become healthy, caring, responsible adults.  One of Aspire’s five key outcomes is that all children in Lucas County enter kindergarten ready to succeed.   For more information on Aspire, visit www.aspiretoledo.org.                                        

The Anderson Foundation is a private family foundation.  The Anderson Foundation strives to enhance the quality of life in communities in which the donor company, The Andersons, Inc., has business operations. Through this unique opportunity, the Anderson Foundation and Toledo Community Foundation are working together to support projects, programs or services that promote cradle to career success for children in the greater Toledo area.

Toledo Community Foundation, Inc. is a public charitable organization created by citizens of our community to enrich the quality of life for individuals and families in our area.  In existence since 1973, the Foundation has more than 670 funds with assets of approximately $219 million.  The Foundation provides philanthropic services for individuals, families, businesses and corporations to meet their charitable giving needs.
